The Chains Of Emotion

Poem By Dennis Walker

The chains of emotion hold me tight
Staying here though it is not right
No were to go no were to hide
My fate is predestined I do not decide
Would I run if I had the chance?
To be free again to play and to dance
My fantasy my passions all ignored
I am too busy to even be bored
Working all hours to make ends meet
No time for love I am dead on my feet
Holidays a dream of a long distant past
Time it is flying it is going so fast
Taxes to pay money for bills I must make
The more that I earn the more they take
There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day
I will have to take on another job to earn more pay
How could I ever leave and start all again
They would just take my money more work more pain
The chains of emotion hold me tight
No were to run I will never take flight! ! ! !

Dennis, A very well written poem. One thing to remember though, Dreams are always within our reach, so long as we believe in them! Lilly :)

Seven Deadly Sins


I take pride in what I do
To be less than perfect makes me blue


I look in my mirror who do I see?
Some times a stranger staring back at me
I see the wrinkles forming as if right before my eyes
I say I feel like a teenager but my pains know that it’s lies


Photos either paper or digital
What memories they conjure
Happy, sad and sometimes bad
Taking us on trips through time


I love the sound of the rain
The pitter patter upon my windowpane
The splashing in the city street
The sound of the puddles under my feet


The city lights shine like twinkling stars
Streets washed clean with the early morning rain
The air smells so fresh and sweet
People will be waking soon and starting their days


You make me happy when I feel blue
You are so loving the things you do
You smile that wink is all I need
You need not perform some super deed
